How we choose the best sustainably sourced seafood

There’s nothing like a good seafood dinner! Not only do weoffer a wide variety of seafood options, our goal is to offer you the very bestin sustainableseafood choices whenever possible.

A few years ago, we partnered with the Monterey Bay Aquarium
Seafood Watch team to help us determine the safest, best sources for seafood
worldwide.

The Seafood Watch
program helps consumers and businesses choose seafood that’s fished or farmed
in ways that protect sea life and habitats, now and for future generations.
This group maintains a comprehensive library of scientific information on the
sustainable status of various seafood species. This list is well known for
being the best sustainable seafood tracker in the world.

There are more than 2,500 seafood recommendations recorded
on the Seafood
Watch list
, and each has a specific sustainable code: best choice, good
alternative or avoid. This list is continuously updated and is a valuable
resource to help our seafood suppliers and purchasing team make sound,
sustainable decisions for our customers.

While we currently have many fish that are listed as best
choice and good alternative by Seafood Watch, our goal is to carry only seafood
listed as a best choice within the next few years. We also work with Monterey
Bay Aquarium’s experts to help enrich and educate our own seafood staff.
